|Another photo of my mother Cecilia and her younger sister
For the background of this layout I used a piece of 49 and Market paper from their Tattered Garden collection.

49 and Market
I did some hand stitching along the edges and some stencilling on the background using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and a Clarity stencil brush.
These are the dies I used:
As usual, I layered all the die-cuts over a darker version, offsetting them slightly to accentuate the edges.
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
I dabbed the Wycinanka flourishes with two colours of Prima Metallique Wax and melted it a bit with my heat gun.
The Moroccan Accent piece was painted white and glazed with brown paint to antique it. I then applied a think layer of glue and sprinkled with Seth Apter Embossing Powders Baked Velvet - Dusk and Lime.
I was going to leave it without heat embossing but the colour was a little too green for this layout so I misted it with Lindy's Stamp Gang T-Bird Turquoise spray and dried it with the heat gun. I then inked around the edges with Library Green Archival Ink.

To finish, I added a few metal buttons and some inexpensive jewelry pieces I bought on AliExpress.
The larger flowers are all by 49 and Market.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
